With a cleansing shower gel, soap and body buffing bath lily as well as a body yoghurt and a little hand cream, this set is perfect for your mum to pamper at home.

British Rose Shower Gel

We love:
It’s actually a gel consistancy and not runny.
A good lather/foam is created when used in the shower.
The bottle is actually pretty big for a small gift set.

We’d change:
We’d love it if the colour was a little stronger.

British Rose Body Yogurt

We love:
Again, it’s a great size for a small gift set.
It leaves your body feeling so soft.
It’s a lush baby pink colour.

We’d change:
The smell is a little perfume-y in comparison to the others.

British Rose Soap

We love:
It leaves your skin feeling and smelling great.
It’s a good size to be left in the bathroom/WC.

We’d change:
We’d love if it came in a liquid form in a bottle (for better hygiene, if you share a bathroom).

British Rose Hand Cream

We love:
By far the best smelling of the lot.
It leaves your hands feeling super soft – especially if you’re using lots of sanitiser lately.

We’d change:
It’s so good it’s likely to get addictive so you’ll want to buy more and more.

Pink Bath Lily

We love:
It’s made with recycled plastics.
It’s not too harsh on your skin.
It works well to use with the other products.

We’d change:
Literally nothing.

Faye’s Final Thoughts: I’m overall in love with all of these products and they smell amazing. Is there anything classier than a bunch of roses? Your mum is sure to love this set. Plus, the box is recyclable, which I love. However, (as mentioned in my previous review for Valentine’s Day) when it arrived, although the main parcel box was recyclable, polysterene balls were inside which I believe are much harder to recycle. Again, I’d maybe suggest using corrugated cardboard or another alternative in the future.
